Cookies serve to improve our services and the use of certain features. For example, the ordering process of our website can only be made possible with the help of cookies. In addition, cookies are also used to collect statistical data on our website, for example on the number of visitors.
You can prevent the setting of cookies at any time by means of an appropriate setting of your Internet browser and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common browsers.

Data transmission to third countries
Customer data are not transferred to third countries outside the EU, unless data from customers have to be transferred to third countries outside the EU in individual cases within the framework of their international business activities or legal regulations.
When using the website, data such as the IP address of users may be transferred to third countries outside the EU as part of website analysis tools or through the use of social networks. (see Website Analysis Tools)
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send an informal message by e-mail.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete, your consent for storage revoked or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Legal retention periods remain unaffected.

Furthermore, when exercising your right to data transferability pursuant to Art. 20 par. 1 GDPR, you have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one responsible person to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that the rights and freedoms of other persons are not affected by this.
Information about the usage of social networks
As far as we offer links to external social networks on our website, these are marked e.g. as logos. If these links are followed by a click, plugins are usually activated and your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective social network. We do not include on our homepage any buttons of social networks, which transmit unnoticed data of users of the homepage to the network operators.
If you follow these links and register there, the information that you were on our website will be forwarded to the respective social network. As a rule, the social network operator can assign a visit to our website to your account and store it on web servers outside Europe. We have no influence on the scope of data collection, the processing of your personal data by the Social Networks and your rights in Social Networks.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
